Waiting in the apartment were fresh flowers and scones! The apartment is extremely well equipped and comfortable. We only used the pool and sauna once but along with the gym they are great to have as an option. We spent lots of time watching the surfers in the bay with and without the use of the telescope. A great week, thank you Caroline 👍

The views across to the forest are really lovely, with a pond down in the valley below. Very welcoming and helpful owners, but not in any way intrusive. Wish we had a week not a week end, and hopefully will return.
